Breakfast Change of Pace

Scones and Meatlof 011If you follow this blog, you might have seen the most recent rendition of meatloaf that I posted in November: Turkey, Sweet Potato & Kale Loaf.  The recipe was adapted from a meatloaf I had when I was in Chicago.

While I thought the meatloaf was delicious, my husband will not eat kale. This left me with an entire loaf to consume by myself. Because it was so good, this was not really a hardship, but I did find myself trying to come up with creative ways to serve it. Continue reading

This time, instead of decorating ideas, however, I found a recipe that looked like something many of my clients would like, so I tore it out to be used at a later date.
